Hello! I am now one year older!! If you read my last birthday post, you would recognise this picture.
Today I got up with a big (brace-less) smile and my mother’s sweet birthday wishes. Walked into the kitchen to see my favourite breakfast and a sweet treat from some family friends. A big text from of my best friends made me cry as I was sitting in my gold chair with a pillow made by my mother. My sister called me and wished me a great day. Today I am wearing my favorite outfit and my brand new purity ring!
I arrive at school to find texts from my friends in Florida and a sweet message from one here. I walk into my first-period class to find a sweet note and a poster board of pictures and Bible verse posted on the board. Now we are here, I’m loving my birthday and I feel complete.
Last night, I felt lonely, I had been sick all weekend and unable to see my friends at school. It’s crazy how quickly I can forget that I am loved and I have friends here. I thought that my birthday would just feel like a normal Monday, nothing special. Boy was I wrong?!
Although I feel complete right this moment, I know that this year will be filled with moments when I feel unloved, incomplete, and scared. In those moments, God is the same. He is the same God that has made this day such a great one. I will forever be complete, wether I feel like it or not.
I want this age to bring some exciting things:
- Celebrating the little things
- Being myself
- Exceeding expectations
- Pursuing God above all else
- Loving when It’s Hard
- READING, WRITING, READING
XOXO, The Christian Prepster
